TERENCE Lambert, the renowned wildlife artist, will be exhibiting his work every day this week, at Essex Wildlife Trust’s visitor centre at Thurrock Thameside Nature Park, near Stanford-le-Hope.
The visitor centre, built on a former landfill site, may appear an unlikely arena for an artist more commonly exhibiting in famous galleries around the world – but the artist was determined to exhibit at the Nature Park, after visiting it last year, to see Sir David Attenborough officially open the site.
“I normally exhibit in London,” says Terence. “But I really wanted to exhibit here in Thurrock, ever since I came to the opening. I was inspired not just by Sir David Attenborough but by the passion of Essex Wildlife Trust’s staff and volunteers, who look after the Nature Park and the Centre.”
Terence Lambert has illustrated many important bird books, since the 1970s, including the acclaimed Collins British Birds field guide, as well as undertaking many commissioned works. Thurrock Thameside Nature Park and visitor centre is open daily, from 9am-5pm. Terence Lambert will be there all week.
